 Access

From the 101 exit state beaches/hwy. 1 and drive up about 4 miles until you reach Faria. Ask around for Mondos. From Mondos look north. If you see white water on the far point,,,GO TO Pitas and surf. A lot of old people surf it. From Faria park walk south, along the point. Not as good as Rincon and just as crowded most days now. Stay on the beach and off of the seawalls, it's private property and the residents get angry.

What Pita-bred?! They LIVE w/rights walled-out in front of 'em. - Pitapoint IS 4 Fairia's u nard-pullers! It'd be so lame to think it's ANY thing OTHER than that MONIKKER. Such Wall-E's THESE LOC'S ARE!?!

What??? - Pitas Point is the same place as Faria you idiot. And who's hiding it? Everyone knows where it is. Dumbass.

PITAS POINT IS NOT FARIA - I can only guess how powerful these residents are to be able to hide Pitas Point from Wannasurf. Faria is a beginners wave, but Upper Mondos AKA Pitas Point has some of the hardest breaking waves in the Ventura area. And the rides are much longer than La Conchita Point AKA Little Rincon and C Street. You can see it if you look north from Faria. I don't want to "out" anybodies secret surf spot, but the bearded old local surfers gave me a hard time a while back. Walking- in below the mean high tide line is legal you idots. Paybacks are a bitch!! And you guys deserve the Bodyboard Contest that I hear is coming your way!!
